Martin’s paddling story began rather by accident in 2012. He had never had a paddle in hand before, but was immediately infected with the SUP virus. Half a year later he founded a school, more for fun and to bring people closer to the fascinating connection between movement and mental relaxation.
Martin is actually an engineer. However, his passion is working with people, so he prefers to use his analytical skills to improve the performance and technology of his customers. The growth he kindles in them is what drives him. In the meantime he has more than 12 years of experience in the personal development of children and adolescents, as well as as a trainer in various sports. He focuses on mental strength and the connection between body and head. Since 2018 he has been training ambitious SUP kids and teenagers in Potsdam. The Havel Racers, as they formed a permanent team in 2019, have already had several German championship titles on their account.
More deeds than words, that is his maxim. Vitality, energy and awareness are its basic values. He doesn’t do anything without passion and creativity, which always question the status quo and always shines with positive energy.
Martin, known as Teichi among friends and in the scene, has been successfully participating in SUP races since 2017. 2019 was his most successful SUP year so far. Teichi was the overall winner of the Hamburg Championship and the SUP Cup Berlin Brandenburg, Vice German Champion in the SUP Technical Race Ocean on Fehmarn and achieved an excellent 20th in the Longdistance Race at the ICF World Championship in China.
